    2s or 3s???

    what top speed do you want?

    something about 40 mph?

    what is the tire diameter?

    put all those parameters into rc speed calculator and you will find your pinion gear.

    Lets add what motor he's running.
    A velineon on 3s in the sand wont last long.

    Edit, didn't see the 2400kv at the top.
    On 3s with a 58 tooth spur and 20 tooth pinion you'll run close to 50 mph, this will be like a thousand on sand.
    Here a link to the calculator soundmaster told you to take a look at.

    Im up to 28 pinion and 54 spur 32p. On 4s. Its crazy fast. I had to gear it so high because of too much torque.

    so why you run on 4s then? 3s is more than enough.

    Agreed, I run two 2400kv 2wd rigs, one street only and the other sand only.
    On 3s there a blast, on 4s they become uncontrollable and imo less fun.
    4s has its place, once in a while I run one in the street truck when I feel like some speed runs.
    That said 3s is enough for me, but then I'm just one man.

    LOL yes sir, we all like different things thats for sure.
    I look at all the why wont my slash wheelie threads and think I'd be a super happy guy if my trucks front tires would stay on the ground and these fellas want to pull wheelies.
    Its all about fun, if its fun for you it doesn't really mater what anyone else thinks.
    Best of luck good sir.

    I ran my MMP/2400 Sla2h on a nice clay track and it did very extremely on 2s. Jumped like a million and wheelied down the straightaway! I have yet to throw a 3s in because my backyard track is just too dang dry. Pray for rain in California. The severe drought is no fun.
